the spotlight on north carolina and joining us to talk about what's going on in north carolina from the republican perspective is the chairman of the mecklenburg republican party. welcome to the program guest: how are you. host: tell us about the status of things from a republican perspective in mecklenburg county now. guest: things are going well right now. we're up 50% over where we were in 2008. and just working to turn out the vote now through election day. host: in the c.q..com we've got an article talking about north carolina john mccain lost any state by a closer margin than he did in north carolina. how have things changed for republicans and for the republican candidate between 2008 and 2012? guest: i think there is a significant difference in our ground game between 2008 and 2012 f. you remember in 2008 the republicans were looking back to 2004 when we carried the state for bush by the largest margin in the country. at that point folks at the national level didn't realize we could be a swing state or going to obama. that's different this time around. they started ground g
. >> in north carolina, a former republican mayor of charlotte and a democratic lieutenant governor are vying to become the next governor. the candidates met for an hour- long debate last night in rocky mount, north carolina courtesy of wra -tv in raleigh. >> good evening and thank you for joining us for this third and final televised debate for governor. one of these two people will be the next governor. we will be asking the questions tonight. the candidates are here and they will let us know specifically what their vision is to move north carolina forward for the next four years. we welcome all of you and thank you for joining us. this live debate is being televised across north carolina. we appreciate you being with us tonight and we are confident it will be in light of information for those who either have already voted for plan to vote on november 6. before we get started, let's meet the nominees. one of them will be our next governor. walter delton is finishing his first term as north carolina lieutenant governor. his career began in 1996 as a state senator and served six terms represe
in the program, we'll be looking at north carolina for our battleground 2012 series. we'll be talking, among others, with rob christensen of the "news & observer." yesterday, former south carolina senator tom daschle spoke at the funeral of george mcgovern, former democratic senator and 1972 presidential candidate, who passed away at the age of 90. this is what -- this is some of what senator daschle had to say at the funeral services for george mcgovern. >> i've never known anybody who preached the gospel more effectively in so many ways than george. a peacemaker, a humanitarian, a teacher, a minister, a congressman, a senator, a voice for the voiceless, and a champion for hungry children. in some ways, it's an irony that george's adult life began in war. when asked about his military service, he would always minimize his heroism. but the fact is that if he'd done nothing after reaching the age of 25 years old, today we'd be celebrating the life of an american hero. 35 minutes in a b-24 -- 35 missions in a b-24, and as was said so well last night, it would have been a lot more had the war g
not to work with republicans. >> next up is phil in hendersonville, north carolina. he's on our line for independents. go ahead, phil. >> hi, i wanted say i think despite the media blackout, gary johnson's going to have a profound impact on this election and even more so in four years. he's got my vote because the democrats are -- they talked and killed 170 children in drone warfare in pakistan and republicans say gosh, that's weak. we're not being tough enough. i don't know how many dead children it would take to satisfy mitt romney in the republicans' blood lust. >> gideon moore in mecklenberg county, talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the republican effort in north carolina. >> right now from what we are seeing, it doesn't look like it's having an impact. to the extent they are drawing folks out, folks being drawn from both republican and democrat party and doesn't look like it will impact either the presidential race or any of our other gubernatorial races. >> we've got a tweet from john in north carolina, who writes under the handle affirma
. john: tonight weir at the and old trial liberal campus university of north carolina at chapel hill. the word freshman is disparaged it is sexist. and the code says explicitly implicitly asking for sex is against the code. what does that say against three mind and three people? to night. john: this week we have come to one of the most prestigious universities in america, university of maryland -- north carolina i debated former vermont governor about the role of government. i hope i convince them but i don't know. when everything it is important we have an open debate. and traditionally that is what universities were supposed to be about. open debate. but college campuses often are not. two reasons. some have speech codes of what you cannot say. some are so liberal libertarians and conservatives are ostracized if they speak up. you had a student here? >> 2010. and robert studies free-speech and is with fire the foundation for individual rights and education. hadley, you were not very political. what happened? >> i have opinions but struggled what i believe, when to speak up, and whe

state of north carolina from this morning's "washington journal. tell us what makes north carolina battleground state. guest: traditionally, it has been a red state. it is moving more and more into a competitive state, and there are several reasons why. one of the things our organization does is ask every year the voters where they stand in terms of conservative level. only florida and virginia, in terms of southern states, are to the left, so it is pretty divided. it also has political progressives, so it has been pretty much a modern state traditionally. there has been a tremendous influx of people from around the country. particularly in the big metropolitan areas, and none has been changing the politics over the years. in addition, it has a significant african-american population. 22% is african american, which is the largest african-american population in about ground. all of those factors have put north carolina at into play. >> recently, you wrote an article with the headline, north carolina more like wisconsin than you might think. give us the comparison between north carol
romney's staff is starting to pull out of the state of north carolina. you say why? because they're failing? apparently the campaign is so confident of a win there, they're shifting resources to battleground ohio instead. the latest polls appear to back them up on that, showing romney in the lead before the first game-changing debate. the numbers got better since then. here's the current cnn electoral map. this assumes that nine states are toss-ups, one is the state of north carolina. if mitt romney wins there, he's 15 electoral votes closer to election. if you add in florida, colorado and virginia, he's still not at 270, which is the number required to win. now, if he can pick up ohio in addition to those, he'll be the next president and his team thinks the move out of north carolina did help him do that to ohio. obama and the dnc are determined to stop him. brad, what's your take on this? are they too confident? >> look, i don't think it's real, erin. it's one of the most transparent head fakes i've ever seen. remember what happened today in north carolina. early voting started
miles on the eastern seaboard. sandy is battering north carolina with winds an rain. the hurricane generating a significant storm surge that sends huge waves ashore. new jersey under mandatory evacuation orders. governors declaring states of emergency there. >> that's quite a storm. forgive me but we have our eyes on monitors and just keep an eye on everything. we have fox team coverage of the storm. first, rick reichmuth live in the fox extreme weather center. no joke today. elizabeth is in kill devil hills, north carolina, already being battered. first to rick with the latest on hurricane sandy's path. >> the storm is strengthening, which is hard to believe. we have cloud cover from canada to ohio. still down to south carolina and the center of the storm is way out here in the atlantic still yet and the pressure continues to drop. that indicates a strengthening storm and that's what we expect to see. the rain will continue to fall across the airline in a coastline but spreading north so we have rain in philadelphia. and it will be towards new york city. we're 36 hours from the ma
that is expected to create extremely dangerous conditions from north carolina all the way up to new england. the outer bands of hurricane sandy already pounding the carolinas right now. the storm is about 250 miles southeast of cape hatteras, north carolina carrying 75.5-mile-an-hour winds. sandy is expected to move north and turn toward the east coast tomorrow and collide way cold front producing a mega storm. that cold front could also mean several feet of snow that might be dumped in west virginia and ohio and the big threat from this storm that it may knock out power, if not for hours, possibly days, maybe even up to a week in some locations. and this storm could dump up to several inches of rain, and in the appalachian area, it could be as much as a foot of snow as well as the other areas that i mentioned that have that cold front kind of hovering. so we have reporters all over the region covering this major storm as it bears down on the eastern seaboard. we'll hear from all of them straight ahead. let's go to north carolina. our george howell is in kill devil hills where they've been
't think you're going to see the president with any presence at all in north carolina. i think it will start to defend until florida even though--it will start to dwindle in florida even though that's where it is today. the white male voter is not favoring the president but it does favor him in ohio, wisconsin and iowa. when you look at it that way you see the population basis around the country florida texas states like that, they could get him over the popular vote, but that's something that is very speculative. this is hard math. >> jennifer: you could flip out iowa and nevada. they're each six electoral votes. >> yes, you could do that. you could take that and give it to romney, and give nevada that, and it's still 271. those two two could switch. and a lot of people are thinking that the romney-ryan campaign is not playing in nevada right now. it could be that that happens. it sort of makes it a bigger triangle and ruins our graph. >> jennifer: i'm sorry, ruin the metaphor. i do think michael, that you're not going to see the ground games pull out of the states. i think th
are going to have a got honest discussion about what is needed. >>> now in north carolina governor debate between democrat walter dalton and republican challenger pat mccrory. mr. dalton is the democratic lieutenant governor of north carolina. mr. mccrory is the former mayor of charlotte north carolina. this took place at north carolina wesleyan college and is courtesy of wral. >> moderator: good evening and thanks for joining us for this third and final televised debate for governor. one of these men will be the next governor. i am david crabtree along with wral's chief laura wral and kent smith. we are here asking questions tonight. the candidates are here and they're going to let us know specifically what their vision is to move north carolina forward for the next four years. so we welcome all of you and thank you for joining us. this is being televised all across north carolina so those of you we appreciate you being with us tonight and we are confident it is granted the night of information for those of you who either have already voted or plan to defeat the plan to vote november 6th
candidate for governor, walter dalton is the democratic candidate, a former six-term north carolina state senator and is currently the lieutenant governor. pat mccrory sat on the charlotte city council. before we began, here are the world's. it will begin with opening statements from both candidate. the candidate will then respond to questions asked by three television news anchors. the big book include the closing statements. the order of the opening and closing statements and questions was determined prior to the debate and have been agreed to buy but the candidates. mr. dalton will have our first opening statement. >> a thank you. i want to remember our north carolina and national guardsmen who lost their lives in afghanistan and remember their families. i look forward to your questions, because this is important. we have seen tough times, and north carolina is at a crossroads. i want to lead us forward. i want to help the people in the middle class, the working families, the senior citizens. i learned from my father from his public service that the right policies and lift lives, the r
's still a hurricane, still holding on, we're seeing strong wind as long the north carolina coast line. here's the winds, 75 mes an hour. moving to the northeast at 14 miles an hour. it continues to strengthen. the track taking it back out and then right back into shore. very close to our area. during the morning on tuesday. that's when i expect this to be the worst coming up late monday and into tuesday. let's talk about that wind. that's going to be the biggest factor here, as we look through the day tomorrow. i don't expect to see too much in the way of wind tomorrow. on monday, notice the wind starting to come in, anywhere in this purple, wind gusts upwards of 60 miles an hour or greater, just before everybody gets into that monday night and early on tuesday. the winds are just one factor here, we'll talk about many more factors. watches, warnings, advisories. talk about them all coming up. >> mandatory evacuations are underway for parts of coastal delaware. that didn't stop some people from having a little bit of fun before sandy threatens to spoil the party. wendy rieger is live
the battleground states of north carolina, ohio and iowa. and eight more get underway on monday including crucial ballots have been requested. 45% from democrats. only 30% from republicans and in ohio, we all know it gets no more important than ohio. it is closer, but democrats are still ahead. 36% of ballots so far registered democrats. 29% have been requested are for republicans. now, just to give you an anecdote that underlines how significant this can be, in 2008 in north carolina, early voting won it for the president. based on votes cast only on election day, he lost the state to john mccain. john mccain got 58% of the votes cast on election day. that's an overwhelming margin, right? but obama won the state. he built up such a big lead in early voting that he won. the first time in 32 years. there's a statistic today on north carolina that's going to shock you. i've got that to share with james carville, political contributor and democratic strategist and erick erickson. great to see you. let me start with you. redstate.com, interesting especially since we're talking about north carolina. t
is the state of north carolina. if mitt romney wins there, he's 15 electoral votes closer to election. if you add in florida, colorado and virginia, he's still not at 270, which is the number required to win. now, if he can pick up ohio in addition to those, he'll be the next president and his team thinks the move out of north carolina did help him do that to ohio. obama and the dnc are determined to stop him. brad, what's your take on this? are they too confident? >> look, i don't think it's really, erin. it's one of the most transparent head fakes i've ever seen. remember what happened today in north carolina. early voting started in north carolina, which we have a huge advantage in, which propelled the president to victory in 2008. so the day that we're turning democrats out to the polls, the republicans say, race is over. no need for anyone to vote. it's over. we're leaving. it's just not true. the race there is close. if you eliminate one outlier poll that showed romney up by nine points, the race is within the margin of error. we have a great ground game there, and we had great turnout
that to leaning towards obama, because it seems that that state has moved away from it romney. north carolina, which at one point had been leaning towards mid romney has been moved back into the tossup category. as we move forward, over these last few weeks we will be looking at states like pennsylvania moving further into the obama category. new mexico, should that be moved further into the obama category? the reverse, places like missouri and indiana, which right now can we conclude at this point that these are firmly in the mitt romney column? that is the kind of thing that we look at, every day there are new polls coming out with reporters touching down in these states, those are the kinds of choices we are going to look at. obviously, it looks like that topic column is getting smaller and smaller and the candidates themselves are spending time in places like florida, ohio, and virginia. as we narrow it down, that is really the real tossup. host: 270 needed to win, your map has 110 tossup states. as you look at them, are there some that are more volatile than others? some that are more li
, that the president is up seven or eight points and i don't understand that the poll in north carolina could be right, that governor romney is up that much. what is it with the polls this year? >>guest: well, i agree. >>shepard: iowa has not been won by that margin in my life? >>guest: right. there are two things. one could be mobile phones and the other is not on get too deep in the weeds, screen. who are likely voters? everyone has a different set of questions. we know the town out will be lower than 2008 likely voters are at a premium, who can turn people out? determining that in a screen to get that person through to allow them to answer the questions is the difference in the polls. >>guest: polling has changed, pollsters will tell you that. momentum is the important part of this poll. if you see a movement toward mitt romney that is more important than the specific numbers. >>shepard: down in florida, mitt romney is just taking florida believe he will win it, spending tons of money there, but, florida is as close as anything in the nation, there is not half a percent between the two guys? >>gues
night and thousands of people in the low-lying areas are already evacuating from north carolina all the way up to maine. stocking up on supplies, for widespread power outages as well that could last days. so new york, already updates now that the subway and commuter train service has been suspended beginning tonight at 7:00, mandatory evacuations of low-lying areas are in place. the stock exchange will remain open, but only electronic trades, nothing in person. we want to update you because i actually think that's not correct, that's going to be closed as far as we know. broadway performances have also been cancelled. then on to new jersey where a state of emergency is already underway, mandatory evacuations are in place in parts of the state. all state offices are closed tomorrow and the new jersey transit is shutting down at 4:00. and in virginia, we understand that schools are being transferred in arlington. the state of emergency has been declared there. voluntary evacuations are underway in low-lying areas, except mandatory evacuations are in place for places like ocean city. a

[ male announcer ] fedex office. now save 50% on banners. >> we got to name this condition that he's going through. i think -- i think it's called romney amnesia. >> romney amnesia. that was president obama trying out a new stump line in fairfax, virginia, a few minutes ago. there has been plenty on the trail but behind the scenes the campaigns are starting to drop hints as to which states are in play and which are not. in the lead up to november 6th. while 120,000 people showed up on the first day of early voting in north carolina an increase from 2008,
. >>> but first, why is the romney camp moving out of north carolina? what do they know that we don't? we'll ask the campaign next. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better.

of preparations to get under way all along the east coast, from north carolina up to maine. let's bring you up to date on already some of the cancellations that have been put in place in some of the northeastern cities as well as mid-atlantic. let's focus on new york where already subway and commuter train service has been suspended for tonight. there are mandatory evacuation orders of low-lying areas. evacuation centers are going to be open in 72 public schools. you'll have to check your listings locally and port authority says train stations will be closing at midnight, and public schools in new york city will be closed tomorrow. let's move on to now the state of new jersey where a state of emergency has already been declar declared. mandatory evacuations in parts of the state are already under way, and many of the tolls are suspended in the garden state area so that people are able to safely and slowly evacuate. buses are being sent to atlantic city and other low-lying areas to help out in the evacuation. and now we move even further south to the state of maryland where that, too, that stat
starting to feel the effects is the coast of north carolina and that's where we have george howell. in the last couple of hours, have you seen conditions change there, george? >> christi, good morning. we're starting to feel a little bit of the rainfall from this system. a lot of that rainfall has remained offshore, but here where we are along the outer banks, we are in position to feel those first bands as they move closer to shore. also the winds are picking up out here. the winds have been right around ten to 20 miles per hour, not too bad, but that situation will change and the best evidence of that -- just take a look out there. you can see what's happening there on the waters, getting rougher and rougher as the storm moves closer to us. right now, this area remains under a tropical storm warning and a flash flood watch, and we also know that 40 counties here in north carolina along the eastern side have all declared states of emergency, just keeping an eye on what happens as the storm moves in. >> i understand you have some video of people surfing, and this was just a little
